A CMYK remix of pointillism brings people back into the process of printing in a celebration of human handicraft

Stephen Fortune

In an interesting twist on analog fetishism Louise Naunton Morgan has set out to restore the element of human craft to everyday mechanism through a CMYK remix of pointillism.

The artist casts herself as the machine, restricting her work to the same palette and processes by which printers reproduce images. Naunton Morgan riffs on the central idea of digital iterability by revelling in the fact that no two images areĀ  alike:

Unlike any other printer thehumanprinter creates unique, individual images each time it prints. Following the same process as a digital printer, thehumanprinter generates the printed product by hand. Throughout the printing process thehumanprinter assumes the role of the machine and is therefore controlled and restricted by the process of using CMYK halftones created on the computer.
